A Note On Last Week's Guest Stars

at . Comments
Jessica Stroup
An overwhelming number of you have inquired as to the identity of the guest actresses portraying the Amish girls in last week's amazing "Great Expectations."

There's no doubt that Jessica Stroup (Jilly Miller, right) and Rachel Boston (Rachel, below) both turned in terrific performances.

You may have recognized Boston, 24, as Beth Mason on American Dreams. She has also guest starred on The Closer and 7th Heaven, and has appeared in several movies. In 1999, she was crowned Miss Teen Tennessee!

Stroup has appeared in, among others, the films The Hills Have Eyes 2, School for Scoundrels, Southern Comfort, and Pray For Morning.

Hopefully we'll be seeing more from these lovely young ladies in the coming years. We're planning on revamping our outdated guest stars section in the near future, so it includes information like this about some of each week's terrific compelling guest performers.

As Ellen Pompeo pointed out the other night at the SAG Awards, they bring so much to the series week in and week out.

Jessica Stroup and Rachel Boston are very hot!!!


Don't worry Jaine. One of the spoiler writers for one of the online websites said that she or he had spoken directly with TR's publicist and that he isn't going anywhere. I really don't think you have to worry. I like Ellen and felt kind of sorry for her with her acceptance speech. It seemed like she got kind of shaken when she confused Kate Burton with Kate Walsh and then kind of blanked on what she intended to say. It didn't really matter though. The point was they were really happy to win and that came through.


Don't worry, Jaine. One of the spoiler writers on the internet, can't remember which one, said very adamantly that she or he had it straight from the Grey's production company that TR is not leaving. I am sure you have nothing to fear. I agree about Ellen. I really like her. I think she mixed up Kate Burton and Kate Walsh and that got her shaken up. I can't imagine having to talk in front of all those people especially people that she probably has admired most of her life.


Ellen was nervous but I liked her speech.


i personally think ellen pompeo sounded like a blabbering idiot in their acceptance speech.


both of these actress did an awesome job....they brought tears to my eyes....i wish there were more people in the world like the characters they played... Cradle to Grave.


Please do not let TR Knight leave the show. He addds a certain sweetness and reality to the show - he looks like a real person - not a model for GQ,
is an excellent actor, and enhances any scene he is in. One can only imagine what he went through when he had to announce to the world that he was gay before he was obviously ready to do so.
He castmates appear to support and admire him.
Please don't let him leave. It would be a travesty of justice if he paid the price (beyond what he has already paid emotionally) for someone elses' mis-steps.


Grey's Anatomy Quotes

When we say things like "people don't change" it drives scientist crazy because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy. Matter. It's always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It's the way people try not to change that's unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change that's up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again.


Callie: Did anyone ever think you two were a couple?
Meredith: No, because we screw boys like whores on tequila.
Cristina: Then we either try to marry them or drown ourselves.
Callie: Huh.
